Superb Resort, with friendly attentative staff and good facilities

Hockley, United Kingdom

All the staff at the resort were friendly and attentive. Our baggage was delayed and we were provided with spare underwear and T shirts. The service provided was 1st class. There was a daily programme of events overseen by the Entertainment staff, who were fun and enthusastic. We went on the wwalk to a local village and salt farm, the cycle ride to Flic an Flac and the garden visit to the sister Hotel Maradiva. We had a ground floor deluxe suit which was very comfortable, had a patio and garden and a 50 yard walk to the beach. tea and coffee facilities were included. The water sports facilities available were, paddle boards, canoes, pedalloes, windsurfers, lazer sailboat and water skiiing, all of which were free. The food was excellent with a wide variety of choices each day, and a different theme each evening for dinner. We were able to arrange a cooking lesson, and we participated in the preparation of a meal which we ate later that evening at the Pink Peppercorn, on the beach. The whole set up at Sands was friendly, relaxing and provided us with a superb holiday.

Small but nice hotel for a short stay

Dublin, Ireland

This hotel is small with one pool and a small beach. It is a very nice beach with lovely view of mountains around it. You had to get up early to get a sunbed on the beach but there was usually ones to be found up on the grass above the beach. The rooms were clean and spacious with a nice walk in wardrobe area in the bathroom. The room also had a small balcony with a sea view. We found the main restaurant buffet to be a little limited. The starters were always cold salads and breads. The mains were just fine. We definitely got tired of the choice and we were only there 4 days. We decided to try one of the restaurants for our last night but they just seemed too empty so we didn't bother. Breakfasts were fine. The setting of the restaurant was lovely and service was fine. There was a real problem with birds getting in at the buffet food and the staff seemed ok about it instead of trying to keep them away. We frequently found them sitting eating from open serving dishes with staff just watching. I understand its difficult in the open air but it was not the same in the next hotel we went to and that was also open air. The bar area was nice. The pool area was nice and the aqua aerobics fun. Overall we had an enjoyable stay but would probably try somewhere else next time.
